Pass ‘Go’ and dine well in a tasty ‘MAINopoly’ – NBC Los Angeles


A classic restaurant menu? It can be a bit like a board game, design-wise.

There are different sections, if distinct, in a menu, and sometimes suggestions or recommendations or even rules, and jumping from one part to another?

We can move through a menu as quickly as we glide through a board game, although we don’t use pawns or tokens (although, honestly, that can make the start of a meal rather joyful).

It’s a kitchen-cool connection that the restaurants found along Main Street have been establishing for several years now.

And to celebrate the shops of the tasty artery? There’s MAINopoly: A Taste of Main Street, a springtime celebration that gives gussied-up foodies a chance to engage in Monopoly-inspired activities while trying delicious bites, on the street.

Now, the dining event will return for its 7th outing on Sunday, May 29, giving passers-by and Boardwalk shoppers a chance to dine at some of Main’s finest dining venues.

How does the grub-tastic game work?

Attendees will have a handful of “dollars” or Monopoly-style tickets, which they can spend along the main street. The “Go to Jail Beer Garden” is a stop along the route, while more hearty desserts and entrees will be available elsewhere.

And you work to complete your game board?

If you do, you’ll be entered to win a Taste of Main Street prize package, valued at $1,000.

“Each ticket includes tastings at nearly 20 locations including Sweet Rose Creamery, JuneShine, Holey Grail Donuts, The Victorian, Ashland Hill, Jameson’s Pub Library Ale House, Stella Barra Pizzeria & Wine Bar, Gnarwhal Coffee and many more” , share the organizers .

Add to the ambiance?

Many revelers show up in oversized monocles, top hats and other attire touches straight from the legendary game.

It is an event for all ages, which has long played a role in promoting the famous pedestrian street.

Now he’s back, rocking a monocle, a top hat, and plenty of ways to find great food and drink.

Will you feel even happier than when you place a hotel on Park Place or the $200 Go and Collect Pass?

Find out in this local and lively gourmet lark.
